Govolunteer.ca connects volunteers with not-for-profit organizations

Since launching in 2003, over 1.8 million individuals looking to volunteer their time and talents have used Govolunteer.ca to connect with not-for-profits and charities across BC.

Did you know? Every year more than 300 thousand people visit GoVolunteer.ca to seek out meaningful volunteer opportunities where they can build stronger and more connected communities.

Govolunteer.ca provides volunteers with a wide selection of opportunities that connects them directly with not-for-profit and charitable organizations.

Vantage Point is the not-for-profit organization that manages Govolunteer.ca

We were founded in 1943 as the Central Volunteer Bureau of Vancouver to provide volunteer matching services throughout the city, and came to be known as Volunteer Vancouver. We are proud of our heritage and our contribution to the amazing power volunteerism has in our community.

In 2010, Volunteer Vancouver rebranded to become Vantage Point and we shifted our focus to supporting the capacity and professional development of not-for-profit leaders.

Vantage Point grew out of the changing expectations we saw developing in the not-for-profit sector, with a greater focus placed on elevating leadership skills and building organizational capacity. We now support not-for-profit organizations to excel in governance, leadership, planning, and people & volunteer engagement. Vantage Point provides a range of learning opportunities and training to support not-for-profit leaders and organizations to do their best work.

Every year, we work with over 10,000 individuals from more than 1400 organizations delivering interactive learning that they can apply immediately in their organizations.

As a not-for profit, you can engage volunteer talent to deliver your mission. Become a member and start posting on Govolunteer.ca today!
